Clerical and staff workers were involved in strikes at two Coventry factories today.

Thirty draughtsmen and clerks in the jig and tool planning section at Alvis Ltd., who stopped over a redundancy issue, demanded the withdrawal of three dismissal notices and full consultation on any future redundarncies.

At Standard-Triumph International Ltd, 20 clerks went on strike in the spares division. They said that as a result of streamlining by the parent company, Leyland Motors, the strength of the scheduling department had been halved and many employees were doing extra work which merited a wage increase.
